Cooler weather conditions , and very cool mornings have certainly
reminded us of fall this week. Migration is in full swing for passerines
also. Most of the warbler species usually seen in this area are moving
through, and vireos and flycatchers are also on the move. Red-breasted
nuthatches are also visiting yards again. Red-tailed hawks are
everywhere it seems, while juvenile northern harriers are also common.
Yards are getting that tired look that heralds fall, but some shots of
rain have greened things up. A few hummingbirds are still around, and
Baltimore orioles have greatly decreased in numbers.

Thirteen species of warblers were seen by Ron Erpelding in Roseau County
on September 2nd including NORTHERN PARULA, BAY-BREASTED WARBLER,
BLACKPOLL, PALM WARBLER, and YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER.

Lake Bronson SP in Kittson County yielded sixteen species of warblers
with the addition of OVENBIRD, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, GOLDEN-WINGED
WARBLER, BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER, and WILSON'S WARBLER on September 3. Four
species of vireo including YELLOW-THROATED VIREO and BLUE-HEADED VIREO
were seen.

Here in Pennington County, a large number of NORTHERN FLICKERS came
through this week. I have also seen several TURKEY VULTURES,
RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH, WILSON'S WARBLER, and ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER.

Ron Erpelding found a CANADA WARBLER in Red Lake County near Huot on
September 1.

The Minnesota Birding Weekend led by Kim Eckert saw BUFF-BREASTED
SANDPIPERS at the Agassiz impoundment on the Marshall- Polk County line
on September 1st. Also seen there were RED-NECKED GREBE, EARED GREBE,
WESTERN GREBE, and BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER.

At the Crookston WTP in Polk County, the group found SHORT-BILLED
DOWITCHER, RED-NECKED PHALAROPE, and PEREGRINE FALCON. They found a
EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE in Fertile. At the Parnell impoundment, they
found a late DICKCISSEL. There were also warblers in the woods
surrounding the Crookston WTP.

In Mahnomen County, Ron Erpelding reported BAIRD'S SANDPIPER, STILT
SANDPIPER, WILSONíS PHALAROPE, and RED-NECKED PHALAROPE at the Mahnomen
WTP. FRANKLINíS GULL and CASPIAN TERN were seen along MN 113 east of
Waubun.

An ORCHARD ORIOLE was observed by Jason Swelstad in southern Otter Tail
County on September 1. Ron Erpelding found a CANADA WARBLER at Maplewood
SP on the weekend.

Charlene Nelson in Grant County reported up to seven RUBY-THROATED
HUMMINGBIRDS at the feeders this week. Warblers included BLACK-AND-WHITE
WARBLER, ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, NASHVILLE WARBLER, MAGNOLIA WARBLER,
CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER, WILSON'S WARBLER, and AMERICAN REDSTART. EASTERN
PHOEBE, RED-EYED VIREO, PHILADELPHIA VIREO, VEERY, LEAST FLYCATCHER,
YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER, and GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER were also seen
at her home near Elbow Lake. On September 5, large flocks of BREWERíS
BLACKBIRDS and COMMON GRACKLES came through the area. One COMMON
NIGHTHAWK was seen, as well as a COOPERíS HAWK this week. At the North
Ottawa Impoundment Ise Varghese reported LEAST BITTERN and SNOWY EGRET
on September 3.
